OST 'Disable offline access' is not 'enabled' to click on... how do I 'enable' the button?

Ok - silly question.
Microsoft says that to disable offline access for you do the following:
How to disable an OST: 1. Open the Mail Control Panel.
2. Click the Microsoft Exchange Server service and click Properties.
3. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Offline Folder Settings.
4. Click Disable Offline Use. You may also want to rename the OST file on the local computer.
However, when I attempt to do this, the button itself is disabled (visible but not clickable).
What up with that? Any ideas? Could it be b/c the account I use on my local laptop does not have the same username/pword as my exchange box? We don't log into a domain here... we just do exchange over a VPN.
I have windows XP PRO SP 2 installed.
